Lori Foroozandeh AUTHOR & SURVIVOR YOU Can Survive YOU Can Overcome It My name is Lori Foroozandeh and I've written my true story of being held captive in Iran after 911. While that is the main focus of the book, I also have included some of my other life struggles such as, substance abuse, childhood sexual abuse, PTSD and living with bipolar. The book has many facets of my personality to be discovered. I feel that a lot of you will relate to one or all of my disorders/ailments/disease whatever you prefer to call them. But there is also a big message to get out to the people, that is YOU CAN SURVIVE, no matter what happens in your life, you CAN OVERCOME IT. Never, never give up. As you will read in my book, it wasn't only Iran that I defeated it was also my struggle with drug addiction and being molested at age 10 by my adoptive brother. Profits from my book go to charities such as AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL, the Humane Society, an d a couple others that are personal to me. So please pick up the book and don't just read, educate yourself on the many lessons that I learned in life so you can avoid the pitfalls that I fell in. I wish all of you the best in life, but remember we have two choices in life to LIVE IT or EXIST in it, I chose to LIVE IT! Roses, Among the Thorns….
